We made our reservations on the Friday before we left and, luckily we found a cabin available online. Yosemite lodging is very difficult to get when most visitors make reservations far in advance. We wanted our own bathroom and this cabin was the only one meeting this criterion in the entire park. The per night charge was $130.Check-in was a difficult process. We didn't realize that registration does not begin until 5pm. Fortunately, we were able to check-in at 4pm but it wasn't what we expected. The registration clerk had arranged at the desk for us to have two beds and we arrived to find only one. We went back to the check-in desk and found out there were no more cabins available with two beds. They promised to bring a rollaway that evening. Gee thanks!The room's decor was very rustic. Plaid drapes and old-style furnishings. Thankfully, the stationary bed was comfortable but the rollaway kept folding up on my poor friend. The bathroom was large and handicap accessible. There is little counter space in the bathroom aside from a tiny shelf over the sink. The walls are very thin and you can hear conversations going on in the adjoining cabin. The sound of our neighbor's toilet flushing almost brought us to tears. Everything became funny after check-in. We didn't know what to expect next from our crazy cabin.The cabin is centrally located in Curry Village and only a short walk over to different eateries and a convenience store. The winter ice skating rink was directly across from the cabin. We could hear the music until about 9:30pm; a relief from the quiet of the night (aside from the neighboring cabin). Quiet hours are strictly enforced from 10pm to 6am.
